  • You can build just about any app you can imagine with App Inventor. Often people begin by building games like WhackAMole or games that let you draw funny pictures on your friend's faces. You can even make use of the phone's sensors to move a ball through a maze based on tilting the phone. But app building is not limited to simple games. You can also build apps that inform and educate. You can create a quiz app to help you and your classmates study for a test. With Android's text-to-speech capabilities, you can even have the phone ask the questions aloud. To use App Inventor, you do not need to be a developer. App Inventor requires NO programming knowledge. This is because instead of writing code, you visually design the way the app looks and use blocks to specify the app's behavior.
  • No socialisation of losses and privatisation of gains: Whatever may need to be bailed out should be nationalised; whatever does not need a bailout should be free, small and risk-bearing. We got ourselves into the worst of capitalism and socialism. In France, in the 1980s, the Socialists took over the banks. In the US in the 2000s, the banks took over the government. This is surreal.
  • The components and functions of the SCL are:- * Tai Wai to Hung Hom (11km long) : Extension of Ma On Shan Line from Tai Wai to Hung Hom, via South East Kowloon and then connect to Kowloon Southern Link and West Rail Line. This railway line will significantly increase the Shatin-Kowloon capacity and provide railway service to the new developments in South East Kowloon. * Fourth Rail Harbour Crossing (6km long) : Extension of the East Rail Line across the harbour to Hong Kong Island. This railway line will increase the cross-harbour rail capacity and enhance the connectivity between the new territories and Hong Kong Island.

  • A space elevator is a proposed structure designed to transport material from a celestial body's surface into space. Many variants have been suggested, all of which involve travelling along a fixed structure instead of using rocket powered space launch. The concept most often refers to a structure that reaches from the surface of the Earth on or near the Equator to geostationary orbit (GSO) and a counter-mass beyond.
